Arezzo villa description

The house is simply furnished in a rustic fashion befitting an old farmhouse, it is not fancy and the price reflects this. This property should appeal to those who are on a budget and therefore willingly forego having posh amenities in lieu of beautiful surroundings, peace and quiet.

There are two large bedrooms with queen-sized beds, writing desks and wardrobes; a kitchen/living area, bathroom, and laundry room. The house is equipped with anything you might need to live and be self sufficient. It has a stereo, VCR, DVD player, satellite TV, telephone, and central heat. There is also a wood burning fireplace.

As the house dates back hundreds of years and was at one point used as a granary, there are no stairs to the upstairs bedroom, but rather the original wide plank ladder. A young Italian couple look after the property. They come periodically to cut grass and do basic upkeep. The house sits on seven acres of land with a vineyard, fruit trees and has a beautiful view of the medieval town of Lippiano with its castle and churches.

Lippiano is a town of only about 150 inhabitants and consists of only a post office and the town bar, (you can find it on a Michelin map of central Italy) where the locals could not be nicer and the town, untouched by tourism, has remained unchanged. It is near all of the important historical cities while remaining off the beaten path. "Chiarella" is a one-and-one-half hour drive from Florence.

Arezzo, Cortona, Perugia, Assissi are all about an hour or less away and Siena and Chianti are just a bit further. There are at least five stunning, medieval towns within a 20 minute drive from the house, many with spectacular views of the Tiber Valley. Monterchi is only five minutes away and there you will find the museum which houses Piero Della Francesca's famous painting "The Pregnant Madonna". There are also some stores, restaurants, banks and bars. Marcello and Marcella run the local grocery store where you will find anything from notebooks to Marcello's homemade sausages. For more extensive shopping Sansepolcro is only 20 minutes away.

Sansepolcro is a lovely little town, again unspoiled by tourism and is famous as the birthplace of Piero Della Francesca. There is a museum that houses some of his paintings, as well as sophisticated shops, bottegas, and restaurants.

If you are interested in train travel, you can catch a train to just about anywhere in Italy from Arezzo, which is 20 minutes away; Rome is approximately 2 hours on the fast train
